I would call this novel a coming of age with compelling read. It contains two criminal cases and travels like a whodunit style of execution. The structure is coiled by its story within story patterns, setting a dimension of tracing the culprits with an edge of the seat atmosphere. I have read the author’s previous book ‘The word is murder’ which was randomly picked for its mystery genre and gave it a go, but now I know what I was getting into and have been right all along. When the first case is paused and moved to second one I was mad to be let loose, but the ending got me hooked and I find the second case less involving than the first may be that’s just me. Overall, a nice page turner and keep you engaged.😌

Everyone has a story in life

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…
“Dad, look the trees are going behind!”
Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed…
“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…
“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?” The old man smiled and said…“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”

Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.

Truth Worth Reading –

In Ancient Greece, Socrates had a great reputation of wisdom. One day, someone came to find the great philosopher and said to him:

  • Do you know what I just heard about your friend?
  • A moment, replied Socrates. Before you tell me, I would like to test you the three sieves.
  • The three sieves?
  • Yes, continued Socrates. Before telling anything about the others, it’s good to take the time to filter what you mean. I call it the test of the three sieves. The first sieve is the TRUTH. Have you checked if what you’re going to tell me is true?
  • No, I just heard it.
  • Very good! So, you don’t know if it’s true. We continue with the second sieve, that of KINDNESS. What you want to tell me about my friend, is it good?
  • Oh, no! On the contrary.
  • So, questioned Socrates, you want to tell me bad things about him and you’re not even sure they’re true? Maybe you can still pass the test of the third sieve, that of UTILITY. Is it useful that I know what you’re going to tell me about this friend?
  • No, really.
  • So, concluded Socrates, what you were going to tell me is neither true, nor good, nor useful. Why, then, did you want to tell me this?

Don’t say something you regret out of anger

“There once was a little boy who had a very bad temper. His father decided to hand him a bag of nails and said that every time the boy lost his temper, he had to hammer a nail into the fence.

On the first day, the boy hammered 37 nails into that fence.

The boy gradually began to control his temper over the next few weeks, and the number of nails he was hammering into the fence slowly decreased. He discovered it was easier to control his temper than to hammer those nails into the fence.

Finally, the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father the news and the father suggested that the boy should now pull out a nail every day he kept his temper under control.

The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

‘You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there’.

As I sat in the park after my morning walk, My Friend came and slumped next to me. 

He had completed his 30-minute jog. We chatted for a while. He said he is not happy in life. 

I looked up at him sheer disbelief since he seemed to have the best of everything in life

“Why do you think so I asked my friend?” 

“I don’t know. Everyone tells I have everything needed, but I am not happy.”

Then I questioned myself, am I happy?  “No,” was my inner voice reply. Now, that was an eye-opener for me. 

I began my quest to understand the real cause of my unhappiness, I couldn’t find one. I dug deeper, read articles, spoke to life coaches but nothing made sense. At last my doctor friend gave me the answer which put all my questions and doubts to rest. 

I implemented those and will say I am a lot happier person.  

Doctor 👨‍⚕ said there are four hormones which determine a human’s happiness – Endorphins, Dopamine, Serotonin, and Oxytocin. 

It is important we understand these hormones, as we need all four of them to stay happy.

Let’s look at the first hormone the Endorphins. When we exercise, the body releases Endorphins. This hormone helps the body cope with the pain of exercising. We then enjoy exercising because these Endorphins will make us happy. Laughter is another good way of generating Endorphins. We need to spend 30 minutes exercising every day, read or watch funny stuff to get our day’s dose of Endorphins.

The second hormone is Dopamine. In our journey of life, we accomplish many little and big tasks, it releases various levels of Dopamine. When we get appreciated for our work at the office or at home, we feel accomplished and good, that is because it releases Dopamine. This also explains why most housewives are unhappy since they rarely get acknowledged or appreciated for their work. Once, we join work, we buy a car, a house, the latest gadgets, a new house so forth. In each instance, it releases Dopamine and we become happy. Now, do we realize why we become happy when we shop?

The third hormone Serotonin is released when we act in a way that benefits others. When we transcend ourselves and give back to others or to nature or to the society, it releases Serotonin. Even, providing useful information on the internet like writing information blogs, answering people’s questions on Quora or Facebook groups will generate Serotonin. That is because we will use our precious time to help other people via our answers or articles.

The final hormone is Oxytocin, is released when we become close to other human beings. When we hug our friends or family Oxytocin is released. The “Jhadhoo Ki Jhappi” (Cuddle) from Munnabhai (Indian Movie) does really work. Similarly, when we shake hands or put our arms around someone’s shoulders, various amounts of Oxytocin is released. Now, we can understand why we need to hug a child who has a bad mood.

*So, it is simple, we have to exercise every day to get Endorphins, we have to accomplish little goals and get Dopamine, we need to be nice to others to get Serotonin and finally hug our kids, friends, and families to get Oxytocin and we will be happy.*

*When we are happy, we can deal with our challenges and problems better*

The life of introverted person is nicely depicted in this novel and, if famous for their online persona then, nothing holds back till satisfies their quench. I got sucked into their fan fiction story which runs parallel and offers the glimpses of an active moderator of the forum. The communications between the Elisa online pal and the growing bonds with the Wallace friends displays the thin line between online and offline contacts. When email is sent by Olivia Kane, Eliza weighs the pros and cons of fan art with a pile of life wisdom to contemplate. This YA fiction calls for a universal embrace of addressing the issues befall upon a recluse and the inner monsters which are harmless in my opinion.

This story is about a boy who loses his mother, dislikes his father for getting remarried and envious on the arrival of his new stepbrother. It starts as a regular drama which moves into a fantasy land and ends up inculcating the importance of various psychological phases of one’s life. It cannot be limited to a youth alone genres because it has some spookiness mood as well. I have found a great mirror of self analysis through this book and hope the same for everyone who does.
